How the Food Hygiene Rating System works


What is a product recall?

If there is a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold, then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

The FSA issues Product Withdrawal Information Notices and Product Recall Information Notices to tell consumers and local authorities about problems associated with food.

In some cases, a 'Food Alert for Action' is issued, providing local authorities with details of specific actions to be taken on behalf of consumers.
